I don’t have a good smith around here to install nite sights on two more HK’s I have. Last USP I had done local shop mucked it up with a punch bad,hell I can do that. Worth it to purchase a pusher for HK or attempt my own at punching them out? Thoughts?

I would get a pusher. It's a good investment, especially if you have multiple handguns you want to do sights on. The MGW ones are really nice, but I ended up buying one of the Wheeler ones on sale for under $100. It's been excellent. I've done 2x HK45s, 4x P30s, 1x VP9, and 1x USP. All of the HK sights have been extremely tight and difficult to remove. The pusher makes it a lot easier.

Need to be very careful with night sights.

A press is a lot better.

Thanks! I’m still looking for the right pusher. I found some HK specific ones but they are pricey for sure.

I bought a MGW sight pro and a bunch of shoes for different handguns. It was a bit pricey, but I imagine it will last longer than I will at this point.

Have you used it on front sights? I just got the Wheeler & a Real Avid today. I like the Wheeler better but for front sights I like the RA better, the shoe on it will fit down inside the dovetail and push on the sight there. The Wheeler you have to push on the blade of the sight which could snap it off? I'm thinking I'll keep the Wheeler and see about having a shoe made for it that will push from the dovetail instead of the blade. With the Wheeler the slide stayed in place while pushing. With the RA the slide was pulling up from the bottom side.

Yep, front and rear. I push on the blade and have had no problems at all. My experience is limited to HK factory and Trijicon HD sights, both of which are pretty stout.  Not sure if you would have problems with other brands of sights/handguns, but I would doubt it.

If you have the ability to make metal blocks (steel, aluminum,
or brass all work adequately) a 'Universal pusher' can often be
adapted fit multiple guns.

If you do not want to have to adapt the pusher to each gun,
getting a brand specific pusher makes things easier usually.

I was replacing my P30L rear sight and the slide cracked, tech at HK told me you need to have a special piece inside the slide when replacing it. ??????

If it cracked at the rails then it is likely the tech was referencing a piece similar to the slide shoe that is used in the mgw sight pro that supports the slide rails.

If the o.p. has more than a few pistols that they see the need for replacing sights on the mgw sight pro is a worthwhile investment. If not find someone who has one.

The tool has more than paid for itself in my short time owning it. I think I have changed approx 6 or 7 pairs of sights so far and it has not let me down.

Fisher Solutions... deluxe set with all the blocks.  I’ve done Hk’s and a SIG so far.  Rock solid!
